What is SUDD inCode® and how can it help diagnose genetic heart disease or the cause of a cardiac sudden death?

  • Do you have a family history of sudden cardiac death at a young age (under 50 years old)?
  • Have you already been diagnosed with a genetic heart disease and are worried about the implications of this for your children?
  • Has anyone in your family been diagnosed with myocardiopathy or channelopathy ?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions you should be aware that sudden cardiac death may be caused by genetic disease. Therefore, establishing if you have a genetic disease is of paramount importance to both yourself and your family when safeguarding your future health.

Every year, sudden cardiac death claims many lives globally, with a genetic base for diagnosis identifiable in around 20% of those cases.

Identification of genetic cause of sudden cardiac death and, specifically, of myocardiopathies and channelopathies  enables your doctor to confirm any clinical diagnosis of genetic disease, implement an effective treatment plan and also offer you support and guidance, for future family planning.

These genetic diseases do not always show up at the same age, or with the same severity, for all family members that are carriers of the genetic alteration. By identifying those family members that are carriers but have not already developed the disease allows preventive measures or appropriate treatment pathways to be aligned with their individual needs.

With SUDD inCode® you will know, through your genetics, whether you are at risk from suffering with genetic heart disease and sudden cardiac death.

SUDD inCode®  is a  genetic test designed to diagnose the cause of sudden cardiac death and familial heart disease. SUDD inCode® analysis 147 genes to provide a comprehensive assessment of the genetic basis of these disorders.

It is important to remember that familial heart disease affects o ne in every 400 individuals  in the general population, and that a genetic cause can be found in approximately 50%  of cases.

Carrying Out A SUDD inCode® Test?

With the help of your physician, you can easily carry out a SUDD inCode® test, following these steps:

  • Order

    Your physician orders the test and then receives our DNA collection kit

  • Sample

    A sample of your blood or saliva (mouth swab) is taken

  • Analysis

    The sample is analysed in our laboratory

  • Results

    We send the encrypted results to your physician, who will discuss the results and the next steps with you

What are SudD inCode genetic test users saying?

Thousands of individuals have already benefit from the SudD inCode genetic test to reduce sudden cardiac death risk and familial heart diseases

  • Dr. Romero
    Dr. Romero Head of the Lipids Unit at Hospital Infanta Elena, Huelva.

    “Early diagnosis of FH is essential to change the natural history of the disease, since it’s genetic, and present from birth. It goes undetected through the first decades of life, and in many cases, is only diagnosed after an episode of cardiovascular disease. Genetic testing of individuals with suspected diagnoses and their family members gives us a head start of more than a decade over the natural course of events.
    In our Lipids and Vascular Risk Unit, it has become an indispensable tool.”

  • Dr. Pedro Royo
    Dr. Pedro Royo IVI RMA Pamplona

    “Thrombo inCode is a product that’s extremely useful in reproductive medicine. For patients who suffer implantation failure, recurrent pregnancy loss or those with backgrounds of thrombotic episodes, it provides information that is extremely useful in their clinical management, both for ovarian stimulation and preparation of embryo transfer.”

  • Dr. Joaquín Garcia Ezquerro
    Dr. Joaquín Garcia Ezquerro CASA DE SALUD HOSPITAL. VALENCIA

    “It helps me gather valuable information to take measures in treating my miscarrying patients and increase the likelihood of success in their pregnancies.”

SUDD inCode® is backed by extensive scientific evidence. A sample of the publications:

Studies show natural or sudden death of unknown cause is not really such, because in 20% of children <1 year, in 40% of young patients (<50 years) and in 54% of young patients who were exercising, genetic variants potentially causing their death are detected in genes related to sudden cardiac death.
